Forum: classic_tv Subject: I doubt anyone cares, but today I bought some records

I was driven there, but I threw up in the car. I finally got to the Salvo shop, and got the following:
The 16 Greats (Original/Various Artists, A&M)
Explosive Hits '73 (Original/Various Artists, EMI)
12Tops - Todays Top Hits (Unknown studio musicians/soundalikes, Summit Records)
Moog Plays the Beatles (???, Summit)
Ticker Tape Played on the Moog Synthesizer by Electric Coconut (Electric Coconut, EMI)
15 Golden Hits (Original/Various Artists, Summit)
Sonata In C Major, etc (???, EMI, note: Appears to be a classical record, and is a 10-inch 33RPM, I presume it was released the 1950s, I might have missed the artist name among the liner notes)
Good Vibrations (The Beach Boys, AXIS/Capitol).

I also got some audio cassettes (no, I'm not gonna post a list of those). But anyway, this does remind me: In the 1950s, there were a small number of classical-music shows. NBC had at least one, and DuMont aired at least two (of which some examples still exist). Being classical music, there is a higher chance that the compositions might be public domain, and thus would be more safe to upload (but not always, since classical music was still being composed then and still is today).

Throwing up in the car,always a classic.And speaking of classics,Voice of Firestone,which was on for many years,was very heavy on classical music,also opera.Think Bell Telephone Hour was pretty much the same.Am sure there were a few others,whether they survive,guess thats the question.And if they do,where?

I knpow the UCLA has an episode of "Concert Tonight", and the Paley Center has 8 or so episodes of "Opera Cameos". I am aware of some classical music kinescopes existing from the late-1940s that aired on NBC-TV.

The music might be PD but the performances might not.

Three things I want to say.

First, it's never fun to throw up.
Second, I'm glad you didn't churf in my car.
Third, I would love to hear those records!

I can't wait to hear "Moog Plays the Beatles". It's the kind of record that will either be a brilliant retro masterpiece or a pathetic piece of shlock. There is no middle-ground with a concept like that!
